Living-Learning Community Peer Mentors

Peer mentors are motivated and committed undergraduate students who wish to make a positive and significant impact on the lives of Rutgers students. Our current peer mentors say that the peer mentor experience has provided a hands-on opportunity to demonstrate the ability to build community, act as a campus resource, make connections with faculty and staff, and positively contribute to the success of their peers. Whether it is assisting a student in identifying clubs that meet their needs, giving personal advice, keeping them company while watching a movie, or outlining the do’s and don’ts of Expos, our peer mentors act as a vital component of our Living-Learning Program.

The peer mentor application for our International Community is still open: Click here for the Peer Mentor Application!
